Saddle Fit

Saddle Up’s top priority is to assist our customers in getting a correct fitting saddle for both the rider and their horse. A correct fitting saddle is key to optimum performance, safety, and communication with your horse. Offering saddle fitting’s on and off site is our way to try to ensure you are getting the best fitting saddle possible. You can bring your horse and trailer to our location, make your selection of saddles, and try them on right at our shop or pick out the saddles of your choice and we will bring them to your location. If you’re purchasing online we also want to make sure it’s the right saddle for you, so we give you 7 days from the date the saddle is received to make sure it’s exactly what you’re looking for!

Saddle fittings on site are no charge, however we do ask and appreciate a call to schedule. It helps us to make sure we have the right staff and can spend the quality time with you that you deserve. 

Saddle fittings off site at your location will incur the following charges per horse:

Within 30 Miles from Saddle Up: We charge a $50 fitting fee and a $1.00 a mile to your location (not round trip).

Within 31-45 Miles from Saddle Up: We charge a $65 fitting fee and a $1.00 per mile to your location (not round trip).

Within 46-60 Miles from Saddle Up: We charge an $80 fitting fee and a $1.00 per mile to your location (not round trip).

Over 61 Miles from Saddle Up will be charged on a case by case basis/agreed price with a minimum charge of $150 which includes mileage up to 60 miles, each additional mile will be charged $1.00 per mile to your location (not round trip).

If you personally have more than 1 horse you would like us to fit (Husband & wife’s horses, or you own 3 horses) Each additional horse per party is $15. If another party at the same location would like us to fit their horse as well, the fitting fee is $50 for their horse and $15 each additional horse, you may split the mileage fee with the other party.

Call us today at 303-772-7821 to schedule a saddle fitting either on or off site!

How do you know if you may have improper saddle fit issues?

  • Does your horse seem anxious or nervous? 
  • Does your horse seem fussy, wanting to bite or kick?
  • Is your horse pinning their ears, tossing their head, dancing & swishing their tail?
  • Has performance declined since you made a change? 
  • Does your horse have white spots on his/her back?
  • Does your horse have an uneven sweat pattern on his/her back after riding?

If your saddle...

  • Constantly needs re-adjusting
  • Leaves a bridge on your horses back
  • Causes you to sit down on your horse’s spine
  • Causes dry or white spots on shoulders from improper rubbing
  • Cinch needs to be overtightened
  • Wants to slide forward, backward 


We can help you get a proper fit! Without a proper fit, you and your horse are working against each other.  

A quote from my daughter... "Do you like having a horse? Yes, well isn't it important that the saddle fits because it’s not fair for them to carry you around and not be comfortable!"
